Most planning degrees at South African universities include a compulsory course in planning law. This is usually the first time that planning students encounter law as a discipline. Planning students therefore need to familiarise themselves with sources such as the Constitution, legislation and court decisions. The Planning Law Casebook seeks to assist students in this regard. Understanding how to use, interpret and apply case law is perhaps the most difficult aspect of planning law.
Part I of the Planning Law Casebook describes the different parts of a typical court case. Part II briefly explains how the Casebook should be used. Part III contains discussions and analyses of 18 key planning law cases, which reflect the different components of current planning law. Part IV is a glossary in which the relevant legal concepts and terminology are defined. Part V includes extracts from applicable legislation. Part VI provides examples of typical planning documents, such as a deed of transfer, a notice of the removal of a restrictive condition or rezoning, and a part of a schedule to a town planning scheme indicating one of the zoning categories.
This edition of Cession for Students is an update with some new cases added and a more user-friendly format. The book is a useful tool for both students and practitioners in mastering this complicated subject.
Cession for Students is divided into three sections: the substantive law of cession, case study questions and a short introduction to the drafting of cession documents. The first section is for examination purposes, the second to test insight and practical knowledge and the third serves as a practical aid.
Few professions are free of the need to understand accounting, least of all the legal profession. Legal finance is a category all on its own, because attorneys are expected to keep trust accounts for most of their clients, deal with conveyancing and understand the issues around shared accounts, whether at corporate or domestic level.
Legal Accounting deals with the fundamentals of accounting, such as debits and credits and how income statements and balance sheets are created. The book also takes you through the transfer journal, bank reconciliations, VAT, correspondent accounts, accounting in conveyancing matters, legislation applying to attorneys’ accounting and partners’ capital accounts. Easy-to-understand examples clearly explain the principles involved.
The fourth edition of Financial Accounting: IFRS Principles is an accessible, comprehensive and concepts-based South African text that assists readers to understand and apply IFRS.
The pedagogy of the book supports the development of crucial strategies and sound financial reporting knowledge, providing an excellent balance between theory, practice and strategy. It is suitable for second- and third-year courses in financial accounting at universities as well as universities of technology.
The new edition of Everyone's Guide To Labour Law aims to assist employers and employees in respect of their rights, duties and obligations in most labour-related matters, and deals with the relevant legislation, the most common pitfalls, and the processes and procedures that must be followed in the event of a problem.
Practical examples provide clarity and better understanding.
McKenzie's law of building and engineering contracts and arbitration is an essential reference for those connected with the construction industry. It is the leading reference work dealing with South African contract law relating specifically to engineering and building contracts.
This is the first book to explain the law applicable to the updated Joint Building Contracts Committee (JBCC) Principle Building Agreement (6th edition, 2014) and the Engineering General Conditions of Contract for Construction Works (2nd edition, 2010), which are both annexed to the book and extensively cross-referenced to assist the reader. The book also cross-references the relevant clauses of the FIDIC Contract Agreement (1999). Disputes arising out of building contracts are often referred to arbitration for solution.
This work therefore deals with the effect of the Arbitration Act 42 of 1965 and the Association of Arbitrators Standard Procedure Rules, which are also reproduced as annexures in the book.
The Constitution informs every aspect of our legal system and every instance of interpretation and application of that system. The Bill of Rights Handbook's detailed coverage of all aspects of Bill of Rights jurisprudence and practice has made it the standard reference work for this important area of law, and it has been extensively relied upon and quoted by the judiciary. The sixth edition of the Handbook is a comprehensive account of over two decades of jurisprudence interpreting and applying the Bill of Rights. The work has been thoroughly revised, in particular to cover developments in the areas of constitutional jurisdiction, remedies and socio-economic rights.
Workplace incidents and accidents affect businesses long after the incidents occur. The interruption of busi≠ness activities and running equipment results in financial loss. Injuries suffered by people damage a business’s image and competitive edge, and demotivate employees.
By approaching safety risks in a measured, responsible manner, safety professionals and business owners can mitigate the occurrence of incidents and prevent them from happening in the workplace.
This book comprehensively, yet succinctly, covers the use and administration of trusts in South Africa. It also serves as a useful reference to more detailed texts on the subject as well as to case law. Whilst the Trust Property Control Act 57 of 1988 sets out the minimum requirements when it comes to the formation and administration of trusts, other statutes (including the Income Tax Act, the Estate Duty Act, and the Alienation of Land Act) also have a direct bearing on how trusts are formed, administered, amended and terminated. Moreover, the common law has been a major factor in the development of trust law in South Africa. This book therefore not only deals with the legislation that is relevant to trusts, but it highlights and discusses the case law which has been an essential part of the development of the law of trusts.
Crime scene investigation is a practical book dealing with the management, investigation, and control and processing of crime scenes, or scenes of incident, as they are now called. The book explains the important principles of continuity of possession and the importance of preventing contamination of the scene and evidence. It also focuses on the roles of experts and aids who can help investigating officers to solve complex and varied crimes. The book pays particular attention to the administrative process involved in the handling of evidence. This includes: The responsibilities of the investigating officer who has to deal with the incident; The various ways in which a scene of incident can be documented; The handling of people who may be present at the scene; The proper identification, collection, packaging and dispatch of evidence. Two of the unique features of the book is the introduction and explanation of a new investigation principle, namely the Lochner principle, and a new search method, namely the Lochner/Zinn search method.
This publication is a compilation of authoritative judgments and legislative provisions illustrating the basic principles of the law of damages. It is intended to provide students and practitioners with easy access to important authorities in the field of damages. The extracts from selected judgments have been arranged systematically and provided with summaries, marginal notes and cross-references. Since this casebook is intended to complement Law of Damages, the notes contain cross-references to the discussion and evaluation of the relevant principles in the latter work. There are also references to other academic comment as well as to case law.
This work is the English rendition of Besigheidsreg. Like its Afrikaans counterpart, it is aimed at non-law students and owes its existence to the need for a less comprehensive and affordable students' handbook dealing with all the legal issues normally relevant for such students. This book is also available in eBook format. Purchase this eBook from Van Schaik or from Kalahari here.
The purpose of this book is to set out the principles and conceptual issues of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Lawyers must be able to do research and should be able to do it well in order to honour their obligations, be those obligations commercial, in the field of criminal justice, constitutional, judicial or academic. Yet much confusion surrounds the nature of research, the need for lawyers and law students to undertake research projects, the requirements for the dissemination of the results, and their impact on policy and practice. Why is legal research needed? What does it entail? Where should one begin? What methods are used for legal research? What are the ethical issues involved? How does one go about publishing the results of one’s research in law, and which are the appropriate publication platforms? How should the quality of legal research be judged?
Legal Research: Purpose, Planning and Publication seeks to begin answering these questions, to introduce law students to legal research, and perhaps even to open up some new perspectives for those in the legal community who wish to sharpen their research skills.
The guidelines and views in Legal Research are not offered as hard doctrine, but rather as a route map for a journey of discovery, in the course of which readers may develop their own approach to the production of valuable legal research results.
Legal Research provides an introduction to ease the way of legal researchers, especially those with little expertise and experience, and perhaps to open a debate among the more experienced lawyers, who have not yet given much thought to the matter, about developing and improving our understanding of legal research in South Africa.
The law of evidence is vital to each legal practitioner and forms part of the curriculum of every South African law qualification. It is compulsory even for some degrees not strictly confined to legal practice, such as certain police and related qualifications. However, the law of evidence is not considered an easy subject, especially not for persons who have never been inside a court of law.
In this work, academics with practical experience of the criminal justice system have selected a number of decided cases as well as statutes relevant to the law of evidence. Illuminating commentary is provided, which should assist any student of the discipline to get to the core of these texts. Due attention has also been paid to the constitutional aspects of the law of evidence.
Die bewysreg is onmisbaar vir elke regspraktisyn en maak deel uit van die leerplan van elke Suid-Afrikaanse regskwalifikasie. Dit is selfs verpligtend vir sommige grade wat niť tot die regspraktyk beperk is nie, soos sekere polisie en verbandhoudende kwalifikasies. Tog word bewysreg as ’n moeilike vak beskou, veral vir diegene wat nog nooit in ’n geregshof was nie.
In hierdie boek het akademici met praktiese ervaring van die strafregstelsel ’n aantal besliste hofsake sowel as wetgewing van toepassing op die bewysreg uitgesoek. Die insiggewende kommentaar wat voorsien word, behoort enige student van bewysreg tot die kern van die tekste te help deurdring. Behoorlike aandag word ook geskenk aan die grondwetlike aspekte van die bewysreg.
The fourth edition of Cases and Materials on Criminal Law includes 26 new extracts covering a range of topics, including the principle of legality, punishment, causation, consent in rape cases, dolus eventualis, knowledge of unlawfulness, common purpose, conspiracy, consensual child sexual experimentation, defamation, robbery, corruption, contempt of court, racketeering and criminal confiscation.
A book that requires no introduction, Caney’s The Law of Suretyship has, for over 70 years, been an authoritative reference work for the law of suretyship in South Africa. The 6th edition incorporates significant developments since the last edition in 2002, a period in which South African courts have been very busy in this area of the law.
This latest edition once again ensures that the treatment of its subject matter is most comprehensive, whilst remaining accessible to non-specialists.
The Law of Suretyship contains three parts, each dealing with different stages in the life of a contract of surety, namely: the nature, formation and operation of the contract; the rights of the surety; and the release of the surety. Each part contains a detailed discussion of their respective topic.
The authors’ treatment of each topic is well researched and supported by a host of authority, and the main text is enhanced by additional information and further discussions in the footnotes.
The aim of this work remains to set out the basic principles of South African private law systematically, in clear unmistakable language, and as comprehensively as is possible in a single volume. Over the years, Wille's principles has appealed to judges, practitioners and students alike, and this edition is also written with the needs of these groups in mind. This edition, of which Dale Hutchison was general editor, was a notable success in this regard, and we have sought to follow its example of balancing the retention of the basic structure of the work with innovation in the treatment of its subject matter and the dissemination of original research. We have nevertheless as far as possible maintained the very useful practice in previous editions of citing the older, original authority for a proposition alongside contemporary sources. Many of the changes were necessitated or inspired by the Constitution, which has radically altered the foundations of our legal system. The impact of the Bill of Rights on private law has been significant and is growing, via both the horizontal application of fundamental rights and their legislative implementation and elaboration. This is reflected in the structure and content of the new introductory general part as well as in the text of virtually every chapter. Importantly, the constitution has given new prominence to indigenous customary law, and in this edition we have sought, where possible in and relevant for a work of this nature, to reflect its status as equal partner of the common law. This has led to major changes in almost all of the chapters on Persons and the Family. The frequency of far-reaching judicial changes to the law combined with the uncertainties of legislative timetables to necessitate several significant revisions during the final stages of preparation for publication.
This bilingual casebook assists undergraduate students in the areas of law dealing with partnerships, companies and insolvency. Generally, cases have been reproduced in their entirety to show students the various sections that make up a reported case. In more complicated cases the relevant facts have been summarised and the most important parts of the judgment reproduced.
The revised fourth edition of Principles of Criminal Law includes the following changes and improvements:
The Principles of the Law of Property in South Africa provides a rich source of expertise and a lively and approachable introduction to the principles of property law. Integrating the common law, statutory law, constitutional perspectives, and the related customary law principles, the text provides all of the essential material within a comprehensive source. Designed to reflect the content of an undergraduate LLB course, the book provides thorough and informative coverage of all the important topics within the subject. The Principles of the Law of Property in South Africa includes several features to support student learning and to inspire independent, critical and reflective engagement with the subject. The book is also a useful resource for legal practitioners wishing to clarify new or foundational principles of the field.
"Principles of Delict" places the law of delict in a contemporary setting, with emphasis falling on recent decisions of the courts and possible future directions. It should provide the student of the law of delict with a concise, yet critical, perspective on this branch of law. A number of features of the work should prove useful to students of current legal issues and practitioners needing a succinct survey of the general principles of delict and the judgments in leading cases.
